Users organize personal information in various ways. We believe that this process could be expedited and improved by using domain ontologies. The main problem with this idea is the lack of automatic tools that help non-expert users to build and maintain their own ontologies. In this study we report progress in the process of adapting ontologies to better represent a given set of documents centered on a topic of interest. More specifically we investigate automatic approaches to enhance the representation of the concepts within the domain ontology. We show that our approach can enrich the vocabulary of each concept with words mined from the set of small documents provided. The method we propose is based on efficient text mining approaches combined with semantic information from WordNet.
